Sea Carrot

The sea carrot grows mainly on cliffs on Wales's west coasts, and grows to a height of about 2 feet. The lower heads are more hemispherical than the closely related wildcarrot, and the stems are more succulent. It flowers from June to August, the flower heads being pinkish in colour when young, turning to white.
